Director BIO: Olyvia Okochi (HOW TO MURDER YOUR HUSBAND)

My name is Olyvia Okochi and I am a student filmmaker. I have been making small films ever since I was in elementary school. I am now a senior at Montclair High School and President of the Film Club. I have done a plethora of film classes and in 2016 I won two Grand Prizes at the Montclair Film Festival for Narrative and Social Impact. I truly enjoy the art storytelling through film and I hope to have the opportunity to learn more.

Director Statement

The idea behind the short film “How to Murder Your Husband” was sparked from a 50’s instructional video I found online. I was so shocked by the blatant sexism of how they portrayed women. I was then inspired to make a film that called out the portrayal of housewives in a comedic lense.
